CORNWALL GLASS FUND 2022 – GRANT UPDATES

“It’s not often that one encounters an organisation with an ethos of absolute care, not only for their customers but also their employees, suppliers and surrounding communities. In fact, it’s anyone who happens to touch their business who will feel the genuine warmth and welcome which goes beyond the norm. This is the norm for Cornwall Group.” (₁)

Representatives from Cornwall Group, Cornwall Glass, The Cornwall Community Foundation and Annie and Maude: The Cornwall Glass Grants Panel 2022

Cornwall Group Ltd, Winner of G21 Glass Company of the Year Award, owns several companies predominantly trading in glass manufacturing and glazing. Operating from multiple locations stretching from The Isles of Scilly to Bristol, The Cornwall Group remains very much a family run business and currently employs, approaching 300 colleagues.

Embracing the idea of community support and recognising the wider impact of COVID-19, and the rising cost of living we are all facing, the Cornwall Glass Fund awards grants to local community focused groups in the areas in which we work. The Fund has been running for the past 9 years and has awarded £122,500.00 in grants to local community projects and since 2013, has been guided by the Cornwall Community Foundation.

This year, the Grants panel – consisting of colleagues and family members from Cornwall Group, Cornwall Glass Manufacturing, Cornwall Glass and Annie and Maude – deliberated and granted funds totally £19,660.00 to 21 groups across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
